|The Lost in Boston series from Varese Sarabande is dedicated to recording unknown songs by major Broadway songwriters. Songs qualify by having been cut from the shows they were written for.
The whole series features excellent performances of some great discoveries. Five Fields songs are included in the last two disks of the series.
The Rialto Shadowlands recordings were produced by Greg MacKellan in the early 1990s in Los Angeles. Rare treasures are performed by a battery of the best of the current generation of Broadway singers, including Jason Graae, Rebecca Luker, Debbie Gravitte, George Dvorsky, Adam Grupper and Paige O'Hara. Two esteemed veterans also feature - Susans Johnson and Watson. The great songwriters are well represented here, and many curiosities from lesser-known writers also find their place. Where else can you find recordings of songs by Herman Hupfeld other than his one great hit "As Time Goes By"? Sadly these recordings are very hard to find.
